Vivo X5 Max is now the slimmest phone in the planet stealing the crown from Oppo R5 which until today was the slimmest phone. In addition to that, the Vivo X5 Max also features standard 3.5mm headphone jack which was missing in the Oppo R5. Further the phone has 13MP Sony camera at the back making it a complete package for those interested in ultra-slim phones.
The only compromise Vivo had to make in making of this phone is battery size. Vivo X5 Max features a 5.5″ Full HD panel but the battery powering is just mere 2000mAh. Users who are looking to buy this phone have to take the battery size into consideration. For comparison, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which features 5.7″ screen packs 3220mAh battery.
The key features of Vivo X5 Max is as follows:
- 5.5″ 1080p Display
- Snapdragon 615 CPU
- 2GB RAM
- 13MP Rear Facing Camera (Sony Sensor)
- 5MP Front Facing Camera
- 4.75mm Thin
- 2000mAh battery
- 3.5mm Jack
- Dual SIM Slot

This is a niche phone. Not everyone will appreciate the compromise. If you can get away with only 2000mAh battery, you are sure to love this phone. The CPU, GPU and the amount of RAM in the phone is also adequate. Also read this: Who is MacBook Air for?
